The Arc of Greater Plymouth is participating in
CommuniTREE, which is an effort by Frank Mand and local citizens to have an ornament decorating the town tree for each of Plymouth's service groups, charities, veterans groups, schools, churches, environmental groups and other community-focused organizations in the town.
Our ornament , which was designed and decorated with help from individuals in our CBDS (Community Based Day Supports) program, was a generous donation from Mark Stafford of Northeast Printing and Graphic Design. It is an example of the work of his new CO2 Laser/Engraver. We appreciate his enthusiastic support and design help for our project. Thank you Mark and a special thank you to Catherine Yang and all our CBDS volunteers Max D., Jackie B., Tara H., Marie S., and Dan C., for facilitating the decoration of our ornament with our LOGO coloration
Look for our ornament, front and center on the tree in Town Square along with over 60 other businesses and community organizations in greater Plymouth.
